Already on Saturday evening, Nicola Sirkis had tipped the Pierre-Mauroy stadium into another dimension with an unparalleled three-hour show. The 65,000 fans came out of there transfixed with passion. Eras, moods mingled in a setlist that reminded those who came that Indochina has always been part of their lives, that the message of tolerance ofA French summer adapts well to this summer of 2022, and as Life is Beautiful (especially with the Republican Guard involved), Indochina seemed eternal, wrote La Voix du Nord on Saturday evening.
Sunday is a record, tweeted Damien Castelain, president of Lille Métropole, 70,000 fans have had the same experience.
The president of Hauts-de-France, Xavier Bertrand, who was also at the concert, confirmed a “crazy atmosphere”.
While on stage, Nicola Sirkis seemed even more moved for this last concert of the tour.
He was almost speechless for a monkey in winter.
And the fans who follow Indochine closely have confirmed the apotheosis in Lille.
“What an evening, what a tour, what a band! The Central Tour ended tonight and for sure it will forever be etched in our memories Thank you, the dream will continue,” wrote Europane on Twitter.
It’s that “Indo” had seen things big, very big, for the anniversary tour of its 40 (41 even) year career (the Covid having postponed the tour): the group had only chosen stadiums mastodon and a phenomenal central structure, the largest ever built for concerts in France. This one, imitating the reactor of a nuclear power plant, displayed 2,500m² of LED screen, thus offering fans perfect visibility and a grandiose spectacle, recalls Sudinfo.
The Sirkis and his band have already made an appointment with their audience in… 2033 so in the meantime, all that’s left to do is… wait.
